6 egg roll wrappers
Olive oil spray

  6. Spray all sides of the egg rolls with oil using your fingers to evenly coat.
  7. In batches, cook 370F for 5 to 7 minutes, turning halfway through until golden brown.

French Toast Recipe

Ingredients

3 2 large eggs
1 cup milk or half and half
pinch salt
1 tablespoon granulated sugar, honey or maple syrup
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
8 slices sandwich bread (sliced thick from Dimos)
butter
Powdered sugar

Instructions

Whisk together eggs, milk, salt, sugar, vanilla, and cinnamon in a flat-bottomed pie plate or baking dish. Place bread slices, one or two at a time, into the egg mixture and flip to make sure both sides of bread are well-coated.

Melt butter in a large skillet or on a griddle. Place bread slices in skillet or on griddle and cook on medium heat until golden brown on each side, about 2-3 minutes. Sprinkle with powdered sugar.

Serve immediately or keep warm in oven until ready to serve, but no longer than about 30 minutes.

Notes

You are simply dipping your bread slices into the egg mixture. If you leave your bread in the mixture for an extended amount of time, it will absorb more liquid and take longer to cook through.
